I like the way I was able to capture the falling snow in this picture. The lonely tree and the greenish ocean in the background make the scenery look very desolate and cold.

    What a great photo! It’s simply magical. The photo of your private Narnia Forest is stunning as well. Even though I’m not a fan of winter or snow, I have to say that your photos have such a magical quality to them that I really enjoy winter and snow! That’s an accomplishment indeed! ~Cindy

    Very nice. I imagine that it would make a perfect cover for a best selling book.

    I’m not sure why, but that was my first thought at seeing it. So hurry and write a book now so you can use it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Thomas and Happy New Year to you!

    Wonderful picture of massive snow fall. I’m not sure if it looks cold, more like fresh, crispy to me – but then again I’m a Norwegian.

    My last post was about snow fall in Oslo. Please visit and comment if you like to be listed on my ‘Snow report around the world’!

    What a snowy picture. I’m especially impressed that you took your camera outside in the snow. All that snow means a ton of water that can get inside the camera. Excellent capture.

    Hey I have seen this shot on another site, is this your image? ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s a wonderful picture. It has depth, texture and you’re right, it gives such a feeling of desolation. It’s great! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is beautiful! I grew up in Wisconsin, where it would start snowing in October and stay white until spring. I miss having snow all winter. Now we have muddy grass. Yuck. Also, I can’t get lefse at the store here. Thanks for sharing your photos!

    I’ve had a hard time catching the snow just right without having to work the levels around in photoshop a bit. Great photo, it does look awful cold, you ought to get that tree a scarf now!

    I love it, even though I’m getting cold feed just looking at it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And Narnia is perfect :D!

    I’ve been staring at this picture for a good 5 minutes and thought to leave a comment finally. The image nearly mystical so much that if you stare long enough you think the snow it actually falling in a still image. I need to get back to work before people start worrying about me staring at my screen … great photography overall on your site. Thanks for sharing.

    I love this picture!

    Would it be ok if i used it to blend in with a light house picture for my facebook profile pic? I wrote a lighthouse poem and wanted some snow on it ๐Ÿ™‚ this pic showed up in google. I want to ask your permission before posting ๐Ÿ™‚ i’ll put your blog with it also ๐Ÿ™‚
